Kalkioh, Dec. 11, 1866.
The refusal of the House of Commons, on yes
tesday, to take up House Bill No. 118, is conclu
sive evidence, that the people of North Carolina
need not expect much from the hands of the
present General Assembly as to a general relief
bill. For the information of the people as to the
merits of this bill I give it below :
A Bill to Prevent Litigation and the

A. D., 1865 an indebtedness based upon the pos
session of property, which, i n the course of events,

nuit which may be hereafter brought for any

for the payment of money in any of said actions
by such courts of record shall be null and void,

Opinions of the Press.
The Louisville Journal says : " The testimoni
als which Dr. Gardner presents to the public
could never have been obtained, except by the
display of great skill and learning in his profes
sion. One thing especially commendable in the
Doctor's practice is, that he will not attempt an
incurable disease for the sake of a fee, but frankly
tells the patient whether he can be cured or not
We cheerfully recommend Dr. Gardner to the
attention of all our friends who may be suffering
from diseases ot the eye or ear."
The Richmond Times says : " We have no hes
itation in saying that Dr. Gardner is the most
scientific and successful eye and ear Surgeon in
"Dr. Gardner's treatment of the eye and ear is
wonderful." Riclunond Enquirer.

Gardner to those suffering from diseases of the

Gardner, who will fulfill all he undertakes to per
form." Baltimore Clipper.
The New Orleans True Delta says : " We can
safely recommend Dr. Gardner as a successful
operator on the eye and ear. He will not under
take to treat a case unless a cure can be effected."

REASON WHY THE
Made at WALTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS THE BEST.
It is made on the best principle. Its frame is
composed of SOLID PLATES. Nor jar can in
terfere with the harmony of its working and no
sudden 6hock can damage its machinery. Every
piece is made and finished by machinery (itself
famous for its novelty, as well as for its effective
ness) and is therefore properly made. The watch
is what all mechanism should be ACCURATE,
SIMPLE, STRONG AND ECONOMICAL. Ex
cept some high grades, too costly for general use,
foreign watches are chiefly made by women and
boys. Such watches are composed of several
hundred pieces, screwed and riveted together,
and require constant repairs to keep tbem in any
kind of order. All persons who have carried
"ancres" "lepines" and "English Patent Le
vel's," are perfectly well aware of the truth of
At the beginning of our enterprise more than
ten years ago, it was our first object to make a
thoroughly goou. low priced watch for the mill
ion, to take the place os these foreign imposi
tions; the refuse of foreign factories, which were
entirely unsaleable at home and perfectly worth
. low well we have accompolished this, may be
understood from the fact that so many years of
public tiial, we now make MORE THAN HALF
OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLD IN THE
UNITED STATES, and that no others have ever
given such universal satisfaction. While this de
partment of our business is continued with in
creased facilities for perfect work, we are at pre
sent engaged in the manufacture of watches of
the very HIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO
CHRONOMETRY, unequaled by anything hither
to made by ourselves, and unsurpassed by any
thing made in the world. For this pnrpose we
have the amplest facilities. We have erected an
addition to our main building expressly for this
branch of our business, and have filled it with the
best workmen in our service. New machines
and appliances have been constructed which per
form their work with consummate delicacy and
exactness. The choicest and most approved ma
terials only are used, and we challenge compari
son between this grad: of our work and the finest
imported chronometers. We do not pretend to
sell our watches for less money than foreign
watches, but we do assert without fear of contra
diceion that for the same money our product is
incomparably superior. All our watches, of what
ever grade, are fully warranted, and this warran
tee is good at all times against us or our agents
in all parts of the world.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of responsible dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
